OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) _ Klay Thompson reached the 5,000-point milestone and knocked down two late 3-pointers in a 1:09 span, leading Golden State past Detroit for its fifth straight win.

Thompson finished with 27 points on 11-for-19 shooting in the Warriors’ 51st victory _ matching their total from last season _ and their eighth straight against Detroit.

Andre Drummond had a career-high 27 rebounds _ 17 offensive _ to go with 22 points in the Pistons’ eighth straight loss.

Thompson’s two 3s came during a decisive 18-2 run, including one with 5:37 left to put Golden State ahead by 10 as Detroit couldn’t fight back.
